I have stepped a way from the blog a few days to eat bon bons and enjoy the sunshine. Ha. But actually we did go away to a large cabin with our family, my parents and siblings and their small children. I brought my camera half charged and didn't bring the charger so I have photos on my camera and haven't had a minute for the charger and the camera to be reunited so I can download the photos I took. The last few days I took pictures on my sister in laws camera and she also has 4 children, one which is a baby so I will probably see those photos in 5 years or so... long story long, I will post those photos later. For now I will rant about our day to day and the funny or rude things my children say. We had a great time together and laughed a lot.
The week has been busy and is flying by. At the beginning of the week I was helping Syd with homework and she was whining about doing homework and she said to me, "You are so lucky you are on maternity leave and don't have to do anything!"
I kept this little girl happy and fed. One day she was crying and I said to Gabby, "I wish she would stop crying." Gabby responded in all seriousness, "If you wish upon a star, your dreams will come true." Very cute. Too bad it was daytime and there weren't any stars out!
Accomplishment #1 I took the van in to get the mud flap fixed that has been loose since probably Cece's 2nd week of life! Oh yes, did I tell you we bought a van???? Our beautiful van came to live with us when I was still in the hospital with Cece and we have been loving her to pieces. I know those of you who are smug about refusing to drive a van think I am crazy but people work with me, we have 4 children, we need a van!!!! Be as smug as you want, it has been so awesome, it may not be cool but it makes life with 4 children so much easier. Try it, you will agree. If you want to use the SUV argument, try it, we have a 7 passenger SUV too and I am here to tell you, our van is so much easier hands down. There you have it, we avoided the van, now we have it and I love it.
Accomplishment #3 this week: I started Cece's memory calendar! Pretty good before her 1st birthday wouldn't you say?
Have a good night.
